National Council on Measurement in Education Task Force on Measurement of Affective Outcomes. Final Report.
Over forty articles dealing with studies of affective variables were analyzed in this report of the Elementary School Subcommittee of the National Council on Measurement in Education's Task Force on Measurement of Affective Outcomes. The measurement problems were of both a theoretical and practical nature. The greatest practical problem is establishing validity mainly because of problems in conceptualizing the constructs. Another major problem is developing a measurement model. Affective variables are, of their nature, introspective and idiosyncratic. But training has been to deprecate such measurement. The major theoretical problem is the need for different criteria for evaluating these instruments. They should not be judged by the same criteria as cognitive measures because their aims are different. (Author/BW)
